Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Similar in format and concept to Vincent’s Colors (2005), this handsome volume pairs paintings by Claude Monet with short phrases from his personal letters as well as articles in which he was quoted. Varied in mood and subject matter, the vivid paintings are beautifully reproduced on the heavy, white pages, while on facing pages, pithy phrases offer either a brief accompaniment to each picture or a starting place for conversations between adults and children reading the book together. The book gives a sense of the artist’s purpose, style, and range. Although in the full-page reproductions the artworks have been cropped to fit the book’s format, each painting can be found in full, though in miniature, in the book’s closing pages, along with its name, medium, date, and location as well as the source of the quote that appears with it in the book. Produced by the Metropolitan Museum of Art, this is a fine, early introduction to Monet’s paintings. Grades K-3. --Carolyn Phelan

Beautiful pictures of Monet's paintings. Even had some that I and my oldest son's art teacher had not seen before. The snow one is incredible. Great way to introduce impressionist painting to children.

Monet? Not a fan. Monet's Impressions? Total fan. This is a baby book. It's got Monet's paintings juxtaposed with his words to describe them taken from letters he wrote to friends and family on the adjacent page. It's a fantastic book, and I love it just as much as I love Vincent's Colors. Especially love that it's hardcover, not a board book, and beautifully printed.

They are a perfect source to open their eyes to a world of art they had never before experienced. Highly recommend them! (The adults are loving them too!)

I use it to study his style of painting and then try to improve on my own paintings with that style.

Great introductory books to art for preschools and up. Beautiful illustrations, along with Monet's quotes about his art work. My children are enjoying recreating his art and love this book.

The front does not look like it, it is produced with the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the illustrations are good details ( annoyingly cropped to fit the page ) so the informed choice is yours as to if this very slim, rather small book of minimal information, probably excellent for a child, is what you were looking for. Another problem with online choices.
